Crosby & the Dead, no Garcia
This session has David Crosby and the Dead rehearsing without Garcia - everything's a rhythm take, no solos or jams. It sounds like Weir is teaching Crosby a couple songs. The tracks are unlabeled, but 1-12 is Music Never Stopped; 13-17 is Low Down Payment yet again; 18-28 is Stronger than Dirt; and 29 is a slower take of Low Down Payment. (There is no Lazy Lightning, as the notes claim. The date may be wrong, since musically this seems to follow the 3-17-75 session, which would explain Garcia's absence.) Skip this session unless you're a dedicated fan of Weir's chords.

Some interesting moments
10 is interesting, a slow short bluesy take on TMNS. 11 kind of a bossa nova jam. Didn't hear any chatter during browsing.
